You love the smell of a fresh, clean home, and you’ll be glad to know you can avoid the harmful toxins that often come along with it. Natural items like lemon juice and baking soda can make your home sparkle every bit as good as the cleaning products you find in your grocery store (almost), but without dangerous VOCs, allergens, and other contaminants that irritate your senses.
We’ve put together this natural cleaning supplies list of items you probably already have in your pantry so you can make DIY cleaners that are good for you AND your home:
From cutting boards to clothing stains, lemons aren’t just for making lemonade. Sprinkle a cutting board with salt, then rub half a lemon over the surface to kill bacteria. Slice a lemon wedge and rub it over faucets and soap trays laden with scum. Or, add lemon juice to a load of laundry to brighten your whites.
Baking soda and lemon juice are an excellent duo for cleaning garbage disposals. Or, sprinkle baking soda on your carpets, let it sit, then vacuum it to get rid of stubborn odors.
Combine a little olive oil with white vinegar and water and you’ve got your very own wood cleaner! Polish your furniture with this easy solution to restore its shine in minutes.
Cream of Tartar
Got tough grout stains? Mix a little cream of tartar with water and lemon juice to form a paste, and start scrubbing. You can also use the paste to polish stainless steel appliances or silverware.
If you love a fresh, clean smell, add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to your DIY cleaner. It’s gentle on the senses, plus you can control how much scent you leave behind.
